Seb was a dream to work with, being a confident model and a business owner made posing in front of the camera look so easy. We toured around Notting Hill finding different locations to shoot in, plus it was great that Seb was not phased by my bad tour guiding skills. One of my favourite shots was when I captured Seb with the leaves. One, it was surprising that we’re in December and there was leaves still attached on the tree branches instead of being on the ground and two because I love capturing nature. A little bit of greenery can really brighten the photo. Throughout the shoot Seb said “Lets go Wild!” and it was pretty ironic that at the end of our shoot we passed a flower shop called ‘Wild at Heart’, which made for a nice send off.
I went to the second Debut Magazine Mixer event and networked with models, make-up artists, designers, singers and other photographers. It was a great environment to socialise with people in the industry who are roughly the same age. For the past year now I have worked with well-established people in the creative sector from photographers, stylists and CEOs of creative brands and therefore connecting with people who are trying to break into the same industry as me is quite nice and reassuring that I’m not alone.
On the night I indulged in their fancy pink strawberry cocktails and fruity cupcakes. Along with getting a free magazine to celebrate the launch of their second issue and a treats bag filled with skin care products and mini badges. Also please excuse the iPhone quality photos, I was to attend this event not photograph for it.
